Changing Views

In Outlook, views give you different ways to look at the same information in a folder. Each view presents the information in a different format and organization so you can get the most from the program. The following list outlines the view types and provides a brief description of each. A view type determines the basic structure of the view; within each view type, you can change the way you see the information.

Table view type. Presents items in a grid of sorts—in rows and columns. Use this view type to view mail messages, tasks, and details about any item.

Timeline view type. Displays items as icons arranged in chronological order from left to right on a time scale. Use this to view journal entries and other items in this type of view.

Day/week/month view type. Displays items in a calendar view in blocks of time. Use this type for meetings and scheduled tasks.

Card view type. Presents items like cards in a card file. Use this to view contacts.

Icon view type. Provides graphic icons to represent tasks, notes, calendars, and so on.
